Joseph is now the first black head coach of any sport in Nebraska athletics history. That’s certainly…something.

 

He has a great opportunity. If he can turn around the culture and find some sort of fix to improve the defense on the fly, there's no reason they can't still make a bowl game. The Big Ten West looks pretty bad so far. I don't think any team in that division is more than marginally better than Neb.

Sounds like Matt Campbell is Nebraska’s top choice.

Campbell seems obvious, so I'm sure rumors will swirl around him and the team all season. Which sucks. Other obvious choices are Lance Leipold (Kansas) and Jim Leonhard (Wisconsin DC). Gary Patterson, who is now a defensive analyst at Texas, and who many think deserves credit for how well their D played against Alabama yesterday, should also end up with a lot of mentions.

After an ugly loss at home to Eastern Michigan, Arizona State president Michael Crow gave a quote to the media that should come as no comfort to Herm Edwards for his job security. Why he’s even still on the job is a mystery to me.

He's out.

No word yet on the interim. Two interesting names to bear in mind....Marvin Lewis and Brian Billick. Both were hired as analysts in the offseason.

 

UPDATE: The interim HC will be running backs coach Shaun Aguano.

Curious and Pointless Stat of the Day:

 

The last non-interim head coach to depart Arizona State with a losing overall record was Steve Coutchie in 1946. The school was then known as the Arizona State Teachers College at Tempe.

 

Bob Owens, who served as interim HC in 1979 after Frank Kush was fired for punching a player, was the last head coach in any capacity to leave ASU with a losing record.

With Herm Edwards's firing, Karl Dorrell at Colorado moved to the top spot of my odds board for next head coach fired. And sure enough, he just got the dreaded "vote of confidence" from his AD.

Georgia Tech has reportedly fired Geoff Collins. Only part of this that surprises me is he got the axe before either Bryan Harsin or Karl Dorrell.

 

It’s the third straight Sunday a head coach has been fired, and we’re still in September.

In addition to Collins, Tech AD Todd Stansbury has been relieved of duties.

 

Collins’ buyout is $11.3 million.

 

Brent Key, a one-time Yellow Jackets team captain, will be the interim HC.

Wisconsin fires Paul Chryst. Jim Leonhard will be the interim head coach.

Chryst won 72% of his games as Wisconsin’s head coach, and won 9 games last year. But after a 2-3 start, he finds himself looking for a new job.

Go ahead and assume when a former coach, who didn't exit on the most pleasant of terms, comes in and holds your renowned rushing offense to just two yards on the day, that you won't have to worry about how to fix things for the next game.

This is the fourth straight week at least one head coach has been fired. And here I thought the quiet morning/afternoon meant I'd get the week off from writing about that. Time to throw out my Week 5 Recap and start over.

Wisconsin now owes Chryst $16.4 million. Chump change for the Badgers, I guess.

They might have to stop doing Jump Around so they don't have to pay House of Pain any more royalties.

Speaking of buyouts, Paul Finebaum reporting that Texas A&M boosters are willing to pay Jimbo Fisher’s $95.6 million buyout if they keep losing. Never underestimate oil tycoons.

Jesus. I guess it’s just all out in the open now. Mad money being thrown away.

One third into the CFB season, five Power 5 schools have committed to paying fired head coaches a combined $60M+ in buyouts.
Paul Chryst, Wisconsin: $16.4M
Scott Frost, Nebraska: $15M
Geoff Collins, Georgia Tech: $11.37M
Karl Dorrell, Colorado: $8.7M
Herm Edwards, ASU: $9.4M

 

Now you know where all that TV money is going.

Wisconsin and Paul Chryst have agreed to a reduced buyout of $11 million, to be paid before Feb. 1, 2023, per a school official. The Badgers were initially on the hook for roughly $19.5 million for terminating Chryst without cause. The UW Foundation will pay the reduced buyout.

 

 

Makes sense for both sides. UW moves on sooner and for much less money. Chryst takes less, but gets it all up front and, presumably, doesn't take any sort of reduction based on future employment.
